Additional Cosmetic Treatments for Men


Body liposuction is assessed separately from the chest. It can be a powerful complement to gynecomastia surgery in that it offers a more complete body transformation for those who can benefit from it.

Liposuction is one of the top three most popular plastic surgery procedures performed each year. Many people turn to liposuction to address stubborn fat. It is most common for men to carry fat in their flanks (“love handles”) and abdomen. Unfortunately, a consistent regimen of diet and exercise doesn’t always alleviate a person’s trouble areas. Liposuction works well to remove fat from these areas of the body, without the fat coming back, and more than one area can be addressed simultaneously.

Men frequently inquire about having liposuction of the body done at the same time as their male breast reduction procedure. Adding liposuction of the body does require the procedure to be performed under general anesthesia.

The most popular areas for liposuction are the flanks (love handles) and abdomen. As Dr. Cruise always says, “the flanks are a home run.” This area responds very well to liposuction and the skin rarely has an issue contracting down. The abdomen is a little trickier in that the skin isn’t always as taut. Depending on the quality of the patient’s skin, removing fat may cause undesirable loose skin. This will be discussed during consultation.

Liposuction Abdomen And Flanks



Age, weight loss or continual weight fluctuation, and heredity can cause a man’s backside to lack the ideal definition and shape for their body. Fat transfer to the buttocks is a solution offered by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Cruise. It is a procedure that entails removing fat from one or more area of the body and placing it into the buttocks. This is often referred to as a Brazilian butt lift. Fat transfer to the buttocks adds volume, lifts, and improves shape. Dr. Cruise prefers this method over silicone butt implants because fat transfer has fewer risks, less recovery time, and no significant incisions.

When liposuction is performed on the body (i.e. abdomen or flanks), it is recommended to consider whether or not to re-purpose the fat by placing it into the buttocks. Plastic surgeons often refer to extracted fat as “liquid gold,” and look for the opportunity to use it whenever possible versus throwing it away. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. The amount of fat transferred will vary from patient to patient according to the desired result. For men who don’t necessarily feel they need buttock enhancement, Dr. Cruise may encourage placing a conservative amount as sort of a “reserve” for later in life when fat tends to melt away due to age. For men with noticeably flat or disproportionate backsides, Dr. Cruise will recommend placing a larger amount of volume to provide a marked improvement.

Keep in mind that combining more than one procedure into one surgery offers the benefit of just one recovery.

Fat Transfer To The Buttocks



A tummy tuck is also referred to by the medical term abdominoplasty. It is a procedure designed to improve the upper and/or lower abdomen. A tummy tuck involves the removal of excess skin, and oftentimes fat as well. If needed, the underlying muscles of the abdomen can be tightened. Men who have lost a significant amount of weight or have experienced ongoing weight fluctuation may have skin laxity that is less than desirable. It is possible to combine a tummy tuck with gynecomastia surgery for a complete body transformation that is often described by. Dr. Cruise’s patients as life-changing.

There are different types of tummy tucks similar to their being different types of gynecomastia. There is a mini tummy tuck, standard tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck, and circumferential tummy tuck. Which one is needed depends on the degree of skin laxity and how far it extends along the mid-section. Dr. Cruise’s specialized technique ensures the lowest possible incision so it is well hidden beneath low-cut pants, swim trunks, and underwear.

Some patients are on the border of needing a tummy tuck and may be able to start with having liposuction of the abdomen as a first stage. Dr. Cruise will use his specialized liposuction technique to encourage skin tightening. With a period of approximately 6 months, the patient will know if he is satisfied with the result. If not, a second-stage tummy tuck for skin tightening can be performed. Staging the procedures provides an opportunity to potentially avoid the need for a tummy tuck. This is not an option for everyone. Dr. Cruise fully educates his patients so they understand the available options and can make an informed decision.

Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck



This 29 year-old male underwent Gynecomastia surgery with Gynecomastia Specialist, Dr. Joseph Cruise in Newport Beach. This patient had struggled for years with the appearance of his chest. Even at his ideal body weight, he still noticed a significant amount of volume that he could not remove on his own. His goal was to have a flatter, more defined chest that allowed him to dress freely with no hesitations. Patient is currently 4 months Post-Op, and is thrilled with his results.
